Working Across Life and Careers
Currently in the planning stages, WALC will be a large, on-going, nationally representative longitudinal population study consisting of approximately 3,000 participants ranging from early to late adulthood. The main aim of the study is to examine work and its impact on people’s lives over the life span. WALC especially focuses on capturing long-term effects (e.g., the effect of work over time on health, well-being, identity, memory, learning and cognition) and how the nature of work and workers is changing. Our findings are intended to support the creation of good quality work for all, and contribute to organisational and governmental policy on this topic.
